OS X Yosemite
With OS X Yosemite, Apple appears to have taken inspiration from the best parts of iOS in its new feature set.
In iOS 7, Apple’s designers focused on using transparency and layers to give a “sense of place” on the screen, showing where different apps and features stood in relation to each other.
The company has brought that to OS X now, with extensive transparency and a unified look that will drive app design on the platform for years to come.
